Tallahassee Defense Attorneys That Care

You aren’t simply a case; you’re an individual who has been wrongly accused of a criminal offense. Our Tallahassee criminal defense attorney team began our law careers with the intent to assist the unfairly accused, and continually practice ethical representation to provide the best possible results to those people. You are an individual with rights, not just another statistic in the criminal system.

Understanding the Florida State System

You aren’t expected to know the fundamentals of Florida state law. At Musca Law, we aid you in understanding your rights, knowing where your case stands, and recognizing your chances for dismissal or potentially accepting a plea bargain.

With over 150 years of combined experience, we have seen just about everything that has gone through the Florida law system. We’re prepared to help you understand your case from the perspective of the law, and diligently protect your rights.

Clear and Concise Communication With Authorities

High-pressure situations involving the authorities can often cause misinterpretations or misspeaking. When unnecessary or unwarranted questioning occurs, you’re not being treated fairly. Prior to or post arrest, our expert team of Tallahassee defense attorneys communicate with the authorities to resolve these matters, and direct a clear narrative. You should never be harassed before or during a trial. We won’t allow that to happen.

Secure Trusted Counsel for Criminal Charges

At Musca Law, we know how serious any criminal charge can be. A conviction can have major consequences and repercussions, impacting your life for years to come. Whether you are facing a felony-level offense as a repeat offender or have just been accused of a crime for the first time, you deserve reliable, effective, and proven defense. Our Tallahassee criminal defense attorneys handle the following:

Regardless of what you have been accused of or charged with, you have a right to a fair trial. Your rights are no less than that of the prosecution, which we will dutifully protect and proclaim throughout every legal motion of your case.

Aiding With Arraignment

During an arraignment, the defense receives information about specific charges. Your arraignment is crucial, and having an experienced defense attorney by your side is essential to receiving the best possible outcome. In many instances, plea bargaining may be arranged before arraignment, providing you with the best-case scenario.

During an arraignment, the defendant is expected to formally plead guilty or no contest, and if the former is chosen, you will move on to sentencing. During this process, further court appearances will be scheduled, potentially leading to a trial.

Assistance in Hearings and Pre-Trial Motions

Our experienced legal team understands tactics that are often used against you in a court of law, and contentiously investigate every aspect of your case to deflect these tactics. Pre-trial motions are used to determine if certain pieces of evidence are unrelated to the case, should not be included in your trial, or if the case should be dismissed entirely based on a lack of evidence from the prosecution. Depending on your particular case, we can and will work to handle it without ever requiring the need for a formal trial.

Tallahassee Criminal Defense Attorney

In the event that you are not acquitted of all charges, you still have a fighting chance to receive mitigated penalties from the deliberation of the court. A knowledgeable and experienced Tallahassee defense attorney from our firm will continue to aggressively combat charges, and come to an agreement.

The goal is to reach middle ground when available, and reduce or eliminate potential sentencing in exchange for a no contest or guilty plea. In many scenarios, your defense attorney will be capable of achieving a plea bargain that benefits you as much as possible, while strategically coming to an agreement with the prosecution.

Plea bargains often come with positive and negative attributes. Your defense attorney will provide legal counsel in determining the best option, though ultimately, the choice is completely up to you, the defendant.

Musca Law Takes Action

Inaction leads to passive results. As your Tallahassee criminal defense attorneys, Musca Law leads the charge with rapid, calculated action that commands results. Appropriate legal representation is often the difference between reaching a plea bargain or acquitting charges, and ending up on the wrong side of an agreement.

Our past actions and records showcase how decisively we act without trepidation. Allow us the privilege of serving you, and putting the full power of Florida state law to work. You have a constitutional right to a fair trial, and deserve legal representation that fights to preserve your credibility and character throughout the entire legal process.

Constant Counsel

We know that criminal charges don’t wait for a convenient time to crop up. Our firm is available 24/7 to answer your calls. The future is unpredictable, but your access to complete legal counsel shouldn’t be. Don’t wait until after the fact to get trusted representation.
